Because protein is very important for muscle building I have to ensure that I eat enough of it in my diet. One of my favourite easy breakfast recipes is an easy muesli.
Take a 2lb container of Quaker’s Oats (or any other equivalent) and dump it into a storage container. To this add the following:
1-2 cups of raw peanuts
1-2 cups of raw pecan nuts
1 cup of raw cashews
1-2 cups of raw walnuts
1-2 cups of raw almond slivers
1 cup of sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1-2 cups of craisins
1-2 cups of currants (both the craisins and currants are for sweetness)
Mix it all together.
I usually eat one cup of the muesli served with either a cup of almond or soy milk. The whole meal adds up to between 40 and 45 grams of protein which is a good solid start to the day. Sometimes I’ll add some fresh fruit like blueberries or cranberries for variety.
